Over a year ago the British brand announced an all-new three-seat hypercar - so-called Hyper-GT - that would spiritually succeed the legendary F1 of the 1990s.

The final name and design of the model will be unveiled before the end of 2018, and this petrol-hybrid-powered auto will be McLaren's most luxurious vehicle yet.

The BP23 will have a centrally mounted driving position inspired by the F1, however the powertrain will be vastly different: a petrol-electric hybrid, as opposed to the F1's 6.1-litre V12.

Paul Pogba misses Manchester United training ahead of Sevilla clash
Manchester United head into the game on the back of three impressive wins since the first leg. Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Mourinho said: "I trust his experience".

Now officially known by its BP23 code name, the auto will carry a proper name - McLaren's Ultimate Series models are named whereas the more mainstream Sports and Super Series models carry numbers. Codenamed the BP23 (the final name has not been confirmed yet), there have not been too many details coming forth about it. Production is due to begin at the end of next year, with every BP23 personalised to each owner's taste by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), a division of McLaren responsible for bespoke customer commissions.

Unfortunately all models have been accounted for, despite the price tag of 1.6m pounds plus taxes, which in Australian terms would put it somewhere in the vicinity of $4m after luxury vehicle tax and other costs.

McLaren intends to build 106 examples of the BP23 - exactly the same number as was produced of the McLaren F1.
